A video of a large crowd of people singing and dancing, waving the flag of Uganda, is circulating on Twitter with the claim that they are celebrating the electoral commission announcement that William Ruto had won Kenya’s 9 August 2022 presidential election.

One Twitter user captioned the video: “Museveni’s country Uganda was into celebrations after president William Samoei Arap Ruto was declared the winner.”

Yoweri Museveni is president of Uganda, which borders Kenya to the west.

The announcement of Ruto’s win, which is being challenged in court, was celebrated in many Kenyan towns.

But does the video show Ugandans also celebrating his victory? We checked.
